One of the main risks comes from the use of scuba tanks or hooka systems (air compressors often made of beer steel drums with long breathing hoses) for deep water fishing. (...) Using artificial shelters and folding traps means fishers don’t need to use hooka or scuba tanks as they can catch lobsters in shallower waters and with lesser risks. (...) There were many accidents as we used to rely on scuba tanks or hooka that often had defective air compressors that allowed oil or gases in shallower waters in the hose,” said Ercito Alberto Brooks, one of the Nicaraguan fishers.
